Commercial Real Estate in a High Growth Emerging Industry
MJ REIT is a private hybrid commercial real estate fund focused on opportunities in the cannabis real estate sector. The Fund focuses on financing commercial real estate whose tenants operate in the state legal cannabis industry. Target assets are properties that have been licensed for cannabis but can also be used for other businesses. MJ REIT’s allocations combine traditional senior mortgages with sale leaseback transactions while holding a small allocation in marketable securities for liquidity purposes. The fund seeks to provide investors with competitive income, diversification, and stability by originating deals in both the retail and industrial sub-segments.
“We are delighted to partner with Phoenix American,” said Chris Reece, Executive Managing Member at AC Capital Partners & CEO of MJ REIT. “In the rapidly evolving cannabis real estate market, it was imperative for us to partner with a high-quality, committed firm for our back-office functions allowing us to focus on generating attractive risk-adjusted returns for our investors.
Fund Administration for Every Alternative Investment Asset Class
Advanced operational solutions are critical to the success of today’s alternative investment funds. Since its early years as an alternative investment fund sponsor, Phoenix American has developed and deployed the most advanced systems and efficient transfer agent processes in the industry. Phoenix American’s STAR-XMS investor management / transfer agent system, its integrated fund accounting capabilities, and customized investor relations are the result of its early experience as a fund sponsor combined with its thirty years of experience as a third-party administrator for alternative investment funds.
